New Hampshire Retreat Bethlehem, NH
ituated north of the Presidential Range of the White Mountains, this home
is conceived as a chain of rooms that capture incremental views of the
mountains. Mt. Washington, Mt. Jefferson, and at least seven other peaks form
a panorama that is observed in sequence as one moves from room to room.
The 7,100-square-foot residence has an elliptical plan with a courtyard in the
center that acts as a domestic respite from the rugged outdoor environment.
The service spaces are compressed within the northern edge of the ellipse,
linking storage, laundry, and wash areas to the garage by way of a service stair.
The joints that connect each room are customized, grafting the surfaces of one
room to another. The differences of each space - living, dining, sleeping, etc.
- are maintained, while a new and continuous whole is formed by eradicating
conventional thresholds from space to space. In essence, the design offers an
architectural joinery that crafts connections between each volume. \
